Bead tips are a great way to finish off your projects with a professional looking end. They conceal areas where you've tied a knot. They also provide a loop so that you can attach your strand of beads to a clasp. The side-hinged clamp-on style is notched on the bottom of each side of the sphere to allow for a seed bead and knot. The two sides of the sphere clamp over the finished knot to form a small round bead with a projecting closed loop. This style is 6.5 x 5mm and has a double-loop clamp style. It is sold in a package of 100pcs.
